Why can't I order a two wheel drive automatic. I am unlikely to ever use the four wheel drive and in my case it would be a waste of cash plus a waste of diesel.
Is this just a marketing ploy on behalf of JLR or is it a technical problem. There does not seem to be a problem with my two wheel drive automatic 2.2d XF

It's just a number thing, the drive train is straight from a XE / XF and both are available in rear wheel drive and auto. I suspect numbers would be that low for auto two wheel drive that it would end up costing almost the same so nobody would buy it.

The AWD drive display that can be viewed whilst driving shows you are almost always in 2wd (rear) anyway, when pulling off or exiting islands you can see the move from 2wd to 4wd with a 50:50 slip. I suspect the front wheels would be engaged more during wet conditions.
